Protect Personal Information from Phishing Sites

What is URL Phishing?

An URL phishing refers to a fake web address or link created to deceive or lure users in email messages or web pages. These URLs are designed with the intention of impersonating trusted organizations, websites, or services to confuse or deceive users. Phishing attackers provide such fake URLs to victims through email or use social engineering techniques to persuade victims to click on these links. Subsequently, users are directed to a phishing site where they may be prompted to enter sensitive information or download malicious software.

For example, in a bank account phishing attack, an email may contain a URL leading to a fake login page. When a victim clicks on this URL, they are redirected to a counterfeit page that appears to be a genuine bank website, where they might unwittingly enter sensitive information.

Attack Pathways of URL Phishing

Sending Phishing Email
Phishing attackers create phishing emails and send them to email recipients. These emails often contain content related to a specific event, benefit, or urgent issue to pique the recipient’s curiosity.
Seductive Content
The email contains a phishing URL, usually leading to a malicious website or phishing page controlled by the attacker. The content is designed to entice the user or even coerce them into clicking the URL.
URL Masking
Phishing attackers often mask the URL to hide where it actually leads. They may make the text link appear different from the actual URL, and when the user clicks it, they are directed to the phishing page.
Phishing Page
When the user clicks the phishing URL, they are taken to a phishing page set up by the attacker. This page typically looks like a legitimate website but is created for the purpose of capturing user information or encouraging them to enter login credentials.
Information Capture
When users enter sensitive information on the phishing page, this information is sent to the phishing attacker. The attacker then uses this information to hack the user’s account or achieve other malicious goals.
